Emilia attended the Costume Institute’s annual Met Gala last night. This year punk theme was chosen, and let attendees interpret the theme in their own ways. Emilia chose to go with a most subtle approach wearing a long red Ralph Lauren gown, and adding the slightest punk rock touch with a pair of Fred Leighton cross earrings. For the after party she chose to mix things up and changed into a gorgeous black dress with leather accents. I’ve added several photos from the event to the gallery. Thank you so much to DeA for her donations!
Emilia was recently spotted arriving at LAX Airport with her mother. She looked amazing as usual and was kind enough to stop and sign autographs for fans.
A question asked frequently by Futurama fans at Comic-Con and other conventions is: Will Zoidberg ever find love? Turns out, that very question will be explored in an upcoming episode. EW has learned that the disgusting decapodian will make a romantic connection with… wait for it… it’s pretty shocking… oh, right, you already read the headline… Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke!
Instead of playing a determined dragon queen, though, Clarke will guest star on the animated 31st-century-set comedy as a flower stand owner who, ironically enough, was born with no sense of smell. “She falls in love with Dr. Zoidberg — the smelliest character on Earth in the future — but she can’t smell him, so it’s a match made in heaven,” explains series executive producer David X. Cohen. “However, being a doctor, he has the opportunity to perform a nose transplant and give her a sense of smell, which would destroy their romance, so it’s a big dilemma.”
Clarke’s episode is slated to air as the second-to-last episode of the series. Futurama will officially end its seven-season run of 140 episodes on Sept. 4, as Comedy Central has decided not to order additional installments.
Happy birthday, Emilia Clarke!
The “Game of Thrones” star, who plays Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO medieval-fantasy series, turns 26 today (May 1) — and what a year she’s had.
The naturally brunette Clarke captured the eyes of audiences around the world when she first appeared as the blonde Khaleesi on “GOT,” nabbing the role after fellow British actress Tamzin Merchant dropped out of the pilot for undisclosed reasons.
“She is this incredible, incredible character,” Clarke told “Access Hollywood” of Daenerys. “You get to see her start as this really young, naive sort of girl who really doesn’t know very much about what’s going on in her life and then she just grows into this incredible woman and this warrior princess, really.”
Most recently, Clarke starred as Holly Golightly in the Broadway production of Truman Capote’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” which ended in mid-April.
We can’t wait to see what this year brings for her.
